Since the module is not included with the default PHP installation, you have to download it from the official repository:
cd mkdir mongo-php-driver cd mongo-php-driver curl https://codeload.github.com/mongodb/mongo-php-driver/zip/master > mongo-php-driver-master.zip
unzip mongo-php-driver-master.zip cd mongo-php-driver-master
You need _phpize _to build the module. You can install it from the remi repository:
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm rpm -Uvh remi-release-6.rpm yum --enablerepo=remi install php-devel
Configure and build
phpize ./configure make all sudo make install
Make sure the installation directory is the same as the PHP extension directory by running:
php -i | grep extension_dir extension_dir => /usr/lib64/php/modules/
and then ls on that extension_dir
and verify you see the mongo.so file module.
If it’s not, change the extension_dir in php.ini or move mongo.so.
Make the mongo module available to php by creating the following file:
And copy the following contents into it:
; Enable mongo extension extension=mongo.so
Restart apache, nginx or php-fpm. Check with phpinfo() if the module was correctly installed.
